If Donald Trump has his way, American workers will be paid slave wages and Hillary Clinton had something to say about that on Thursday.
As we all know, Trump manufactures products by having them made by cheap labor overseas instead of hiring American workers and paying them a fair wage here at home.
Clothing such as ties for his menswear line are made in China and Mexico, two nations he has derided in recent months as enemies of America who take jobs from Americans. But Trump is the one who took those jobs from Americans by outsourcing them to other countries in the first place.
In addition, Trump products are manufactured in other nations such as Japan, Honduras, and Brazil as he criticizes companies like Ford and Nabisco for outsourcing like he does.
And that’s why the Democratic nominee ripped Trump a new one after a reporter told her why Trump allegedly doesn’t employ American workers.
“Secretary Clinton, the reason that Donald Trump says he makes so many of his products overseas is because of the market, that it’s just too expensive to do it here right now and that he would change that market as president,” a reporter said after catching Hillary outside in Las Vegas.
Sick of Trump’s excuses, Hillary delivered a scathing response.
“You know, when you run for president, you need to be judged by what you have done and I think the evidence is pretty clear. Everything he’s made, he’s made somewhere else. He’s not put Americans to work. He’s imported foreign workers instead of hiring Americans at his country clubs and resorts. He has cheated contractors. I take that personally. My father was a small businessman and he got contracts…And I’ve met people who were destroyed by Donald Trump, so take a look at what he’s done, not what he says. Thank you.”

Indeed, Donald Trump has screws over contractors before. In fact, he was recently ordered by a Florida judge to pay a paint shop $300,000 to cover legal fees the local business incurred after the owners were forced to sue because Trump’s gold course refused to honor the last payment in a contract after they finished the work.
Donald Trump doesn’t care about American workers. He only cares about himself and how he can personally benefit from becoming president. A Trump economy would be a disaster for the American worker. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is the wife of a former president who served during one of the strongest American economies in decades, so she knows a thing or two about bringing jobs to Americans.
